Bob Dylan will headline the new AmericanaramA Festival in America this Summer.

Wilco, My Morning Jacket and Richard Thomson are amongst the acts confirmed to play alongside Dylan as the festival tours the United States from June through to August. The festival begins at the Cruzan Amphitheatre on June 26 before culminating with an appearance at Mountain View, California on August 4.

Bob Dylan’s latest album, 'Tempest', was released last year. The singer subsequently responded angrily to accusations that he plagiarised other artists and authors' material, claiming that "wussies and pussies complain about that stuff". He also likened the detractors to the same kind of people who branded him 'Judas' for switching from an acoustic to an electric guitar in 1965 at the Newport Folk Festival and insisted that "all those evil motherfuckers can rot in hell".

Tickets for the festival go on pre-sale on Wednesday, April 24.
